Great Decisions 2018: Turkey, a Partner in Crisis

Eight sessions: every other Monday beginning February 5

1:00 pm- 2:30 pm in the Community Room, Lower Level

Of all NATO allies, Turkey represents the most daunting challenge for the Trump administration. In the wake of a failed military coup in July 2016, the autocratic trend in Ankara took a turn for the worse. One year on, an overwhelming majority of the population considers the United States to be their country’s greatest security threat. In this age of a worsening “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West, even more important than its place on the map is what Turkey symbolically represents as the most institutionally Westernized Muslim country in the world.

 

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching the DVD and meeting expert speakers in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Each year, eight topics are chosen by Foreign Policy Association's panel of experts. In partnership with the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg, this year's discussions will meet every other Monday afternoon at 1:00pm (4/2, 4/16, 4/30, 5/14).  Registration is open.  The Daytime Academy is made possible by a grant from Harsco Corporation, honoring the memory of Derek C. Hathaway and his passion for life-long learning.
